FUNCTIONAL LAB TESTS

The body is designed to function perfectly.

Cells do not need to be taught what to do. Cells, tissues, organs, and systems naturally seek a state of ease.

“Normal” function equals healthy function.

Symptoms are a signal that something is wrong.

These functional lab tests help to find imbalances, deficiencies, or malfunctions that may correlate to chronic or recurring symptoms. They are not always necessary, but can often be helpful in providing additional details to determine the root cause of symptoms and to offer a guide for therapy and comprehensive healing.

 
FUNCTIONAL LAB TEST OPTIONS

Food Sensitivity + Nutritional Deficiencies (hair) 

Screens 975 food and environmental items as well as identifies nutritional deficiencies.  Food sensitivities are so often at the root of chronic symptoms but can go undetected, unlike allergies. 

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (hair) 

Screening test that measures 20 minerals and toxic heavy metals in a hair sample providing pertinent information about your metabolic rate, energy levels, sugar and carbohydrate tolerance, stage of stress, immune system and glandular activity.  Hair, like all other body tissues, contains minerals that are deposited as hair grows.  The minerals remain as hair grows out. A sample of hair cut close to the scalp provides information about the mineral activity in the hair that took place over the previous three to four months. HTMA is considered a standard test used around the world for the biological monitoring of trace elements and toxic metals in humans and and animals and is the same technology used to detect mineral levels in soil and rock samples.

Dutch Complete (urine) 

Comprehensive assessment of sex and adrenal hormones and their metabolites as well as your daily cortisol pattern and melatonin. 

GI Map (stool) 

Comprehensive GI test measuring pathogens (bacteria, parasites, viruses), opportunistic organisms, normal flora, fungi, parasites and antibiotic resistance genes, as well as immunologic markers for GI health and function including SIga, Elastase, Calprotectin, and Anti-gliadin testing.

MycoTox Profile (urine) 

Detects mycotoxins (toxins from mold) that one may have been exposed to in your environment and through airborne exposure or in your food. 

Organic Acids Test (urine) 

Comprehensive metabolic snapshot of overall health with 76 markers including intestinal yeast and bacteria, vitamin and mineral levels, oxidative stress, neurotransmitter levels, and oxalate levels. 

Thyroid Panel (blood) 

Basic Panel and Advanced Full Panel are available. Blood draw required. Convenient location will be recommended. 

 

A variety of other tests are available upon request or as required.
